Apparently, I feel that it's necessary to try and make Vance's lunch as spooky as possible.

$10 bucks that he won't even say anything about this when he gets home from school today.


Vaughn and I are on Day 3 of Potty Training.

For her, not me.

She does return the favor of cheering for me when I go, so that's a nice addition to my day.

Our Potty Currency goes like this: 2 M & M's for number 1 and 5 M & M's for number 2. I printed out a princess potty chart and bought stickers, but she could care less about those. Actually, she gets the biggest kick out of flushing. She's done pretty well over the past two days, so hopefully today goes even better.

Thinking that I've bought my last box of diapers ever (EVER!) is pretty exciting and worth celebrating. But we'll hold off on that until it's a done deal.


Big night for us, pizza, Survivor, and pumpkin carving. We carved pumpkins last year while Vaughn napped, so she hasn't experienced pumpkin guts yet. We toasted the seeds but no one really ate them.

Do you toast seeds? If so, what's your recipe?

Have a good day! Feels like fall is finally here! Is it safe to turn the AC off?

    I love that you make holidays so special for the kids! Glad to hear Vaughnie is doing so well on her potty. That is always a great milestone to pass. Mom

  2. Good luck with the potty training. I have one whole giant box of size 6 diapers that I guess I will have to hold onto for Joseph. We carved a pumpkin this past weekend and I was just saying that I wanted to roast the pumpkin seeds, but I don't know a good recipe either. I used to love to eat them as kids. I only remember my mom using oil, salt and pepper, but I tried that once and it didn't taste the same as it did when I was a kid. If you get a good recipe let me know.
    You are so creative with Vance's sandwich. Is that a cookie cutout that you used? Happy Wednesday!

  3. Last year I did olive oil and sea salt, but it was the actual roasting that I didn't think I got right. Some were burnt and some were really chewy. I like them store bought. Guess it's easier that way!

    The pumpkin shape is a cookie cutter. I just used a knife to cut the eyes and mouth. Thanks!

    Looks like we're going to need all the luck we can get with potty training Vaughn. Today was a step in the wrong direction for her. Kids!
